SPASME - DEEP INSIDE - GALY/NEOBLAST
Having existed since 1994, Spasme has only now gained interest because singer Martin Lacroix has jumped ship to Cryptopsy. Metal fans would be interested in knowing what he sounds like. It is this interest that has prompted the label to pick up this demo for a rerelease. Firstly though, Spasme is without charm and another band in the great maelstrom of the metal scene that offers barely anything new or exciting. The band's death metal is mundane and the songs devoid of interesting and listenable riffing. Following Lacroix's defection the members have gravitated elsewhere and all that can be said is that these acts have to be an improvement upon this. Many might say that the vocals in Cryptopsy could hardly deteriorate after the last singer -and they would be correct- but the good news is the new man actually enunciates like a metal singer and Cryptopsy's hardcore days have to be over, and not a day too soon!
